The Basics Behind Glow Plug Replacement Services at Marietta Tire Shop

Glow plugs are pencil-shaped objects that help diesel engines start. In essence, they serve as the diesel equivalent to spark plugs found in gasoline engines. Unlike spark plugs, glow plugs use heat to get the engine going. In cold weather, glow plugs play an especially important role. This is because diesel engines often experience ignition troubles when temperatures are low. Diesel engines require the air to reach a certain temperature for fuel ignition to occur, but they tend to absorb heat when they are cold. Glow plugs help solve this problem by providing enough heat for the fuel to ignite. However, glow plugs usually require a small amount of time to warm up before they can perform. While they gather heat, glow plugs let off a small light or glow. As a result, this process is often referred to as “glowing.” After the glow plugs finish warming, drivers should be able to successfully start their diesel vehicles.

Why Should You Have Glow Plug Replacement Services Performed at Marietta Tire Shop?

Without a functioning glow plug, a diesel engine will have trouble igniting fuel in the combustion chamber. Over time, your glow plugs will wear out and need to be replaced. Faulty glow plugs may fail to ignite the fuel in your engine, and they can lead to idling and unwelcome smoke emissions. If your glow plugs are acting up, bring your vehicle to us and our service staff will replace the bad glow plugs. Signs of bad glow plugs include hard starting, rough idling, a misfiring engine, or white smoke. When these symptoms occur, allow our service staff to inspect your glow plugs and install replacements. Our knowledgeable staff is equipped with the right tools for the job, and we are eager to help.
